If you are looking for a romantic place to stay in Victoria, look no further. Nice rooms in Victorian style, outstanding service, delicious breakfast. This hotel makes even a rainy weekend in Victoria a memorable event. The Hotel is located in walking distance to the harbour front.

I was in Victoria at the beginning of May for a 3 day training trip. I wanted to treat myself to nice accommodations so headed to trip advisor to search. Abigail's is currently rated #1 and I couldn't agree more. From the time I arrived to the time I had to (sadly) leave, the customer service was almost unbelievable, it was so top notch. I had asked for a quiet room on the top floor and was given the Canterbury Bell suite. It is at the end of the hallway and so very quiet. There were appetizers waiting for me, even though I arrived after the normal 5-7pm appetizer time. Very much appreciated after a long travel day. I ordered my breakfast to my room the next morning and was not surprised by the absolute fantastic display and meal. As I said in the title, this hotel is amazing. The room was spotless, very comfortable and extremely quiet. The food was fantastic every day. The service is unbeatable. Thank you so much. I will be back!

Room Tip: If you can afford the top floor suites they are extremely quiet and comfortable, especially at the e...

We just returned from a single night stay at Abigail's Hotel--boohoo! This was a quick trip to celebrate our anniversary. My husband found Abigail's Hotel through TripAdvisor so "thanks" for being true to these reviews. The staff were very helpful and very nice--all Canadian's seem to be this way! We have had the good fortune to stay at some very swank places in the US (including many bed-and-breakfast type hotels) and Abigail's is definitely ranked 1st or 2nd. I would encourage anyone wanting privacy, luxury, a great breakfast, and a location within walking distance of downtown to consider Abigail's Hotel.

Room Tip: There is no elevator so if you are challenged by stairs it is best to select a lower floor. We had...

Recently had a two night stay with my wife at Abigails in Victoria,which was an absolute joy from the minute we arrived.All the staff are friendly,helpful and caring at all times.The complete hotel is imaculate and every attention to detail has been thought through.The even put on a table of appertizers at around 5 pm even though they do not actually have a restaurant.
Breakfast in the mornings was another joy,fresh food and well cooked by the resident chef.
The location is within easy walking distance of the main town centre and has plenty of parking spaces.
All in all a magnificent hotel with great staff.
Well done to everyone.
We will definately return.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms over the kitchen,unless you are an early riser.

We spent a wonderful two nights here and could have stayed so much longer. Our room, 2B was magnificant. Four poster bed, fireplace, exquisite bath with jetted tub and all the wonderful touches that make a stay at this caliber hotel so wonderful. Above and beyond all the lovely physical attributes of this hotel, such as library for evening appitizers and drinks, breakfast room that was well appointed, outdoor seating among the gardens, the STAFF is what makes this such a great stay. They are welcoming, pleasant and helpful without being intrusive. When asked for help wth a day trip or a walking tour on our own, their advice was spot on. They seemed to enjoy their jobs and that enthusiasm so came through. Cudos to them. The breakfasts were so yummy with fresh everything. The coffee perfect! Tortally loved everything about our visit and can't wait to return.

Our first stay at Abigail's will certainly, certainly not be our last.

We had arrived in Victoria under stressful circumstances--we we're house hunting, with very tight deadlines looming, and very new to the area. The staff, ambiance, and fellow guests were the perfect antidote to this stress.

Upon arrival, we were stopped in the parking lot by a very personable staff member who wanted to ensure we knew where to park before offering to take our bags inside (despite our shyness here, he graciously insisted upon helping). We were then ushered up to one of the Rose rooms, where relaxing lighting, beautiful music, home-baked cookies, and plush, welcoming bedding were waiting for us. This suite featured the largest, most comfortable bed we've ever had, at any hotel (and we are no strangers to 5 star plus environments).

The bath/shower combination was everything we'd hoped it would be from reading reviews. Anyone that calls these masterpieces "gimmicky" is entirely missing the point. They are luxurious, very deep, and the rainfall shower head is a dream. With the two-sided fireplace going, and a glass of wine in hand, there's nowhere else I'd rather be.

The library was perfect for planning our day and enjoying a drink in the evening. The staff are absolutely excellent and management deserves top marks for developing such an outstanding team. Employees have a talent for appearing when you need them, and disappearing when you don't. They are attentive without being overbearing or hovering--such experiences really expose the lacking customer service at so many other hotels. You won't be disappointed.

The breakfast the next morning was outstanding. We had our choice of three delicious options (artisan granola with rich yogurt, banana/chocolate chip pancakes with pure Canadian maple syrup, or homemade sausage and eggs anyway). The staff accommodated our small requests graciously. The dining environment was multicultural, and it was so nice meeting other guests from around the world. :)

The building, grounds, and decor are very "European estate." It felt very much like the setting of a Victorian romance novel--comfortable, rich, antique, and refined. If ever I needed a literary escape--this would be my first choice, bar none.

Our only complaint: things were too comfortable! We didn't want to leave and didn't get nearly as much done as we probably should! A guilty pleasure at it's finest!

What a great way to celebrate a friend's milestone birthday, a visit to Victoria BC and a couple of nights at Abigail's. This was my first time to Victoria and because of the staff at Abigail's I definitely hope to return. The attention to detail (hosted appetizers, printed menu's, delicious food and friendly staff) set this B&B apart from the rest. The location is great, easy to walk all over town. The staff recommendations for dinner are spot on and they'll assist with reservations. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the claw-foot tub made the bubble bath irresistible! Can't wait to go back!
